How do I change the name on my PayPal account?

You can change the name on your account if it's misspelled or if you've legally changed your name.

Here’s how you can change your name:
  1. Go to your Settings page.
  2. Beside your name, click Edit.
  3. Select the appropriate option and follow the instructions.
Depending on the type of change you want to make, you may need to provide some documents to us.
